Punch it

While everyone and their Mum seems to be getting Star Wars tattoos these days (don’t even get me started), Adam Hays‘ work always stands out among the crowds. Always flawless and always fun, there’s a reason he has become the modern nerdy gentleman’s tattooer of choice.

Mr Hays owns Red Rocket Tattoo in New York, but travels a lot so you can get work from him at conventions/guest spots (I know I plan to). Check out his Facebook here.

Brighton Tattoo Convention pictures

I had a great time at Brighton Tattoo Convention on Saturday, and I’d love to share all the great photos I took with you all, but… er… I didn’t take any.

Sorry!

Probably for the best though, this way at least the pictures are in focus! Here is a small selection of some of the great work done over the weekend.
